    Here's a great idea. Sell everything, get a shitload of cash, and travel back to the 19'th century. Because dollars have gotten cheaper, I'd be rich, and I could patent several thinsg early like electricity and telephone. Then, I'd put that money into high yeild savings, repeat the process for years, puttign more in savings each time, then open my money and be the richest man on earth.

    ^^ it's different currency, though.

    I would also like to go back and find out how I got that scar on New Year's Eve 1995. Just curious.

    I'd also acquire assault weapons from when they were legal. GUN NUT!

    Oh, I got several scars as well that seemed to have appeared out of no where, but don't have a time table to try and trace them back.

    There's one thing I wouldn't necessarily change but that I am curious about:

    When I was 18, I went to a movie with my friend Penny (we saw Rocky 3, or was it Purple Rain LOL?). I had the overwhelming feeling that I was supposed to go and buy a lottery ticket at the booth outside the theatre. The feeling was so strong and persisted through the night but I didn't follow up on it and walked right past the tickets. It felt like I was actually choosing a path at that moment. I knew I would be OK, but somehow I made a choice right then and there.

    I wonder about that day sometimes, since I get intuitions that are strangely accurate, but never a feeling to buy a ticket as strong as that one and I haven't had another feeling like that on the lottery since ... 24 years to be exact!

    People who say they have no regrets or wouldn't want to change anything, I just don't believe you.
    To take my education more seriously! Definitely a do over in my book.

    Did you have a hobby you didn't pursue or a group of people you would have liked to befriend?

    What would the alternate major be? I changed subjects so many times in high school and college. Ultimately, I ended up graduating first in my class in a subject I picked by accident (got kicked out of statistics and that was one of two I could still take without missing a year). Later, I got a higher degree in the same subject. I wonder often what would have happened had I chosen Plan B and had that degree in literature. How ENFP of us - jack of all trades...

    External sources of suck really suck. What did you end up doing instead of aerospace engineering?

I've only learned to know one decent person here and I've had to let him disappear from my life so he wouldn't get in trouble (and I now miss him, boohoohoo, what a same).
    - token some Spanish classes. I want to learn how to speak Spanish!
    Don't give up on being nice unless it impinges on taking care of yourself. I think i know what you mean though -- getting so focused on Fe and losing touch with Fi, what we want. That's hard and frustrating, like a rudderless ship, for an Ne led ENFP. Good job on keeping your sanity in far less than perfect conditions!

    I want to learn Spanish too, in preparation for a trip to Tierra del Fuego some day.

    By all means, do. What will the world look like without the space-time continuum? Are you imagining a non-linear passage of time? Share the vision.

    What missed opportunities?

    Fine, be grown up and sorted and zen like. Fair enough. Glad you have that perspective and that things worked out for the better.

    Same as prplchknz.

    OH MY GOSH ... I'd be kicking myself. When i have moments like that, got to follow them through. Its like life's grand plan is giving me a heads up and i must take that opportunity. Like you said though, your at that cross roads, your choice to go left or right.
    The money probably would of made you miserable anyway.
